NAME

       bcmxcp - Driver for UPSes supporting the serial BCM/XCP protocol

NOTE

       This man page only documents the hardware-specific features of the
       bcmxcp driver. For information about the core driver, see nutupsdrv(8).

SUPPORTED HARDWARE

       This driver should recognize all serial BCM/XCP-compatible UPSes. It
       has been developed and tested on Powerware PW5115 and PW9120 hardware.
       If your UPS has a USB connection, you may also consult the
       bcmxcp_usb(8) driver documentation.

EXTRA ARGUMENTS

       This driver supports the following optional settings in the
       ups.conf(5).

       shutdown_delay=delay
           The number of seconds that the UPS should wait between receiving
           the shutdown command (upsdrvctl shutdown) and actually shutting
           off.

       baud_rate=rate
           Communication speed for the UPS. If this is set to 9600, it tries
           to connect to the UPS at 9600bps. If it fails to communicate, it
           will go into baud-hunting. It starts at 1200 and goes up to 19200.
           If it succeeds, it tell you the speed it connected with. If not
           included in the config, it defaults to baud-hunting.

DEFAULT VALUES FOR THE EXTRA ARGUMENTS

       ·    shutdown_delay = 120

       ·    baud_rate = none

INSTANT COMMANDS

       This driver supports the following Instant Commands:

       shutdown.return
           Turn off the load and return when power is back.

       shutdown.stayoff
           Turn off the load and remain off.

       test.battery.start
           Start a battery test.

       outlet.n.shutdown.return
           Turn off the load on outlet n and return when power is back. (n is
           the outlet number reported by the upsc command)

TODO LIST

       Report UPS statistics information
           BCM/XCP supports reporting of UPS statistics data.

           Access the config register to change settings.

BUGS

       None known.
